Kids Crafts: Scrapbooking

May is National Scrapbooking Month, so I thought I’d share some ideas for scrapbooking projects that are perfect for kids of all ages. Scrapbooking is an awesome way for children to express themselves through a combination of pictures, words, drawings and photos and to learn about the world around them, and document their experiences.
